  • Yes reminds me of the tree surgeon I dated who kept mentioning he had 3 chainsaws in the house and had the audacity to call me crazy when I wanted to leave! Definitely not quirky.

  • I love this video! So insightful and cute and funny as well lol! Thanks for making me smile! I’ve had too many of these types of crazy experiences with people-some ending with me getting physically attacked and having to get call the police. Being around people who act this way can sometimes really get out of hand, the ones who freak out over every little thing or it can just be overall unpleasant and unnecessary to deal with. So, I try to be aware of how people who are close to me cope and how they react and respond to minor and major things ( I also keep an eye on my own behavior lol). But, I see so many of my friends (girls and guys) willing to continue give chances to people who spontaneously combust over small and/or irrelevant things. In the past, I’ve also been guilty of allowing someone to mistreat me or been willing to put up with someone’s unreasonable, erratic behaviors. I would justify it by saying I had a loving heart, people are not perfect, I could see their potential and I believe in giving someone second chances. While most of that is still true to a certain degree… Now, in hindsight I can see how it was really a reflection of my own insecurities and fear of losing someone that made me be willing to put up with that kind of behavior from previous boyfriends, friends and family members. Through the years I’ve made an effort to educate myself on this topic, but I still have one question that remains unclear. How many batshit crazy episodes do you put up with before you leave them? And at what point do you call it off?? What are the conditions? Depending on the situation and relationship I’m sure answers could vary…but in general what would you say? Some batty behaviors are obvious, while others are a little more subtle. Where do you draw the line?

  • Have to admit: the scene with the guy adjusting a pillow during sex turned me on. Hey, it’s been too long for me.

    Great work, as usual!

  • Very offensive and insensitive. People love to make fun of mental illness and laugh at what they don’t understand. There is a difference between people having issues and anxiety and people having personality disorders where they are crazy and dangerous.

    People with anxiety disorders are not dangerous or disrespectful. In fact they’re the opposite and some of the nicest and most sensitive and considerate people and extremely intelligent and creative.

    Many of the most intelligent or creative people in history had some mental disorders they struggled with internally. Einstein, Telsa, Vincent van Gogh, Ernest Hemingway, Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens, Michelangelo, Beethoven, Samuel Johnson, only to name a few. I guess they were all unworthy and only crazy for suffering some mental pains.

    Not only are you asserting they should be laughed at and feared, though that they should also never be able to have friends or relationships. I guess they should all shoot themselves.

    1. I didn’t get any malice from this. I do understand your point though, mental illness is no laughing matter. Sometimes though it is no laughing matter being stuck in a relationship with someone who exhibited these behaviours, particularly the violent impulsive ones and aren’t self aware enough to get help or try to tone down their anger issues. Just speaking from experience, everyone deserves love, Albert Einstein was a womanizer, and Tesla ignored his loved ones for the sake of his inventions….

      1. No one should put up with being treated badly no matter how ‘normal’ the abuser or their actions seem to be to society or not. Those types of signs everyone should watch out for for their own sake.

        Though what bothers me is stereotyping everyone that has some mental disorder as dangerous or abusive or mean etc. or even only as a terrible person to have a relationship with. For instance, I’ve talked to and met so many other people with ocd and across the board they have been some of the nicest, thoughtful, supportive, and intelligent people I have ever known. They’re not some low lifes who smash windows or are violent or ignorant etc. Most of them are highly functioning and are artists, software engineers, or other professionals, who succeed and hold it together despite how much torment they have to put up with in their minds. Most of them are very pro social, empathic and struggle with obsessive guilt and worry about hurting others. And they’re very self aware of their problems and usually hide them from most people. They don’t want to be that way, they’re victims of a brain dysfunction.

        It’s everyone choice who they want to date, whatever it is that they like or don’t like about them or are bothered by. Though no need to stereotype ‘types’ of people cause they don’t act as ‘normal’ as others.

        I basically simply stay single and reject guys cause I know I can’t handle a relationship and have more important things to focus on, like my brain being broken. I do get envious and hate that I’ve even had too see and know exactly what I’m missing out on, though it’s simply not a choice.

        Gives new meaning to “It’s not you, it’s me!” No, really!

  • Still trying to decide if I like this video or not. I will say Disney movies are FABULOUS! If I can get a guy to watch them with me, every now and then, he’s a keeper :)

  • This video was so funny. Especially the comment about the dog “this dog has been with me for eight years! You will lose”! English people must take their tea very seriously!

  • Even you said that all successful entrepreneurs are a little mental and obsessive. So I guess that makes you a little mental….. ;)

  • Jana, the word ‘crazy’ is used on a daily basis and when people use it it isn’t that they necessarily mean people with personality disorders or serious mental health issues. Everybody has mental health and in my opinion having good or bad mental health is on a spectrum: I agree with Matt that not being able to see your own quirks and (I think) laugh at them is a sign that your mental health is sliding into the poor mental health category. On another note, having had both personal and professional experience of people with serious mental health problems, I’m looking for a man who is self aware and feeding his good mental health bucket. Matt if you or any man threw a cup in my house you and your dog would be out

  • Hi Matthew,

    I am a young woman with Asperger Syndrom, which is a high-functioning form of autism.

    I have suffured all my life from “normal” people misunderstanding, jugement and rejection.

    They don’t want to become friends with people who look weird and they label them as “crazy”.

    Yet they don’t know how much they are missing because they might learn a lot around people who have a unconventional way of thinking.

    This video made me think about those kind of behaviours which caused me pain.

    I think you (and as many people as possible) should learn more about autistic spectrum conditions.

    It may make you revise your opinion and become more open-minded.

    I’m sure you didn’t mean to hurt us, but a little knowledge would be beneficial to anyone.

    1. Agreed. I have suffered from OCD and ADHD most of my life and all of the misunderstanding and judgement is difficult to deal with.

    2. Please look at Kathryn’s comment.and I’m sorry that you are afflicted with what you haveand I don’t think anyone in the world would judge you, and if they did those people aren’t worth thinking about twice. I know that Matt would never post a video intent on judging or criticize a disability or affliction. this video was probably only meant to inspire laughter and make light of a serious subject in order to remind us to be cautious. Because we should be cautious for people like my ex. He was someone that everyone loved and was quietly and viciously abusive and someone that people couldn’t believe it first would do this. And in Matt’s own quirky way, :), he brought laughter into a very serious subject.

      1. I know this video is supposed to be funny and that there isn’t any mean intention behind it.

        I don’t feel miserable about being the way I am, quite the contrary.

        I am miserable because of people who reject others because they are different.

        What I want to insist on is that we would all win in being more open-minded.

        A guy who seems weird to you might be a obsessive but talented musician or mathematician and not a sociapath.

        But the poor guy won’t find any woman because they judge him on his quirks and strange behavior.

        Don’t you think it is unfair?

      2. The video did make me laugh and I wasn’t offended about recognizing the difference between quirkiness and a sign of something being more of a problem and dysfunctional. We should all be able to recognize in ourselves and others when some type of thinking or behavior crosses the line of being abnormal and take it seriously. Ironically most people with OCD take offense of how unserious their disorder is stereotyped as in the media as only “cute quirks” and something trendy for everyone to say they’re “a little OCD” about this or that. They’re bothered that people don’t understand how debilitating it really is for them.

        The only part of the video I took offense to was the beginning when he said, “If you notice any of these signs, RUN A MILE!”

        I could understand that with the examples of people with anger outburst issues, obviously you wouldn’t subject yourself to anyone who couldn’t control their anger and treated people badly.

        Though people with simply a spider phobia or symmetry compulsions are not going to bad people or dangerous, very unlikely!

        It’s up to anyone who they want to date and what their standards are and there is no right or wrong of who a person likes or why. That’d be very hypocritical of me to say there were considering how extremely picky I am and even irrational about who I reject.

        Though to suggest as an across the board thing, that others should run and reject anyone instantly who shows any signs of anxiety is not cool. That’s up to each person is what I am saying.

        1. Ok :).
          I must admit I didn’t watch the video entirely because I was shocked by the “If you notice any of these signs, RUN A MILE!” part.

          I took time to watch it and realized that it is actually light-hearted and very funny :).

          And I realised that the “quirky” behaviours describe me more than the “crazy” ones.
          I am not at all the aggressive type ;).

          1. I imagined that the “crazy” behaviours were going to be just “very quirky” as opposed to “slightly quirkly”.
            But in facts they are REALLY crazy.

            It’s true you could be a comic actor. You have a great sense of humour and you don’t take yourself seriously which is a quality I admire.
